from the main page, try clicking on "Browse All Artists' Collection Pages in the Live Music Archive" and then KDTU. It will bring up just 1 link, the band's collection page link. Click on that 1 link, and you will be good to go.

I know it sucks that it is a 'two click' method to get there, but it's just the way the architecture of the system is, and the way it will be for a while.

Forum: etree Subject: Purpose of the Archive

I think a lot of people here seem to forget that the Live Music Archive is only a small part of the whole Internet Archive. (Well, one of the larger portions in terms of available content, but not very large in terms of its importance to the overall project here.) The Archive is not here to help fans shake their booties; the Archive is here to offer "access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format." The Archive is a non-profit organization with limited funds and limited time which has graciously agreed to allow us to use a sizable amount of their limited resources to host live music recordings of interest. I think it's important to be grateful for what we have, rather than complaining that it's not good enough!

(Note: this is not particularly aimed at Buckonine's comments. Requests for new or improved features are not a bad thing, as long as they remain requests and not demands. I just think it's important to remind people every now and again not to take the Archive, and especially the LMA, for granted.)

excellent point - i for one had complaints when the new system came in to being but i've come to get used to it and work with what is presented

i challenge anyone to find a better system that is both free and legal!

Excellent point man. Thanks for the refreshing perspective. It is nice to be reminded to step back and see the big picture.

P.S. Where have you been for the past year? Haven't seen your posts in a while.
